A delightful cameo of Bacchante, pink and white hard-stone from agate family, medium relief, very detailed and fine carving. Multi-layers of agate were used to execute this Beauty, very good use of layers to achieve a live image. The cameo is set in a 14K yellow gold frame of a simple design, the pin catch is a later replacement, very well executed, was done professionally, if you look on photo#5 you will notice a small solder mark that was cleverly hidden under rope applique, a very fine repair job, the cameo was cherished and taken good care for. Bacchante or female follower of God Bacchus is an enormously popular subject of carving, this particular piece is sweet and beautiful due to a rare colour of the agate, it has a very nice distinctive pink layer for background, when I first saw it I thought is it a Conch shell, but a professional gemologist tested and confirmed that it is a hard-stone, at the same time the frame was tested and confirmed to be solid 14K gold. Wonderful cameo. The safety chain is original and is present. The perfect antique condition with unnoticeable repair mentioned above. Please inspect pictures as they are an integral part of the description, do not forget to use the zoom-in feature to fully appreciate this rare cameo. All questions are welcome and answered promptly.
